Objective: To describe the resolution of medial femoral cutaneous nerve palsy utilizing chiropractic interventions and IASTM.
Clinical Features: A 64-year-old man sought care for low back pain and pain extending into his right medial thigh that had been present for 1 month.
Intervention and Outcome: Chiropractic management, including spinal manipulation, McKenzie procedures, and IASTM was used to resolve medial femoral cutaneous nerve palsy.
Conclusion: Our case identifies a patient presentation that suggested discogenic pain combined with peripheral nerve entrapment. The combination of spinal manipulation with end-range loading should be studied in more detail.
